Manager Amanda Wright said: "‘It took a lot of organising but it was well worth it as the children had such a lovely, enjoyable week as previously for the last couple of years the children have missed out on lots of social events due to the lockdown so it makes it even more rewarding to see them all interacting and having such a great time."
